I was recently informed through an old friend of your
wife's situation, and thought that though it would no doubt prove
largely irrelevant considering the breadth of your concerns, I would
nonetheless write you a little note to convey my best wishes to you.
Spirituality and divine providence have ever been cloudy subjects to me,
but my thoughts and prayers such as they are firmly behind you and
Kathleen. I'm sure you've received innumerable letters of this kind
but what the hey, one more can't hurt, right?
You and Kathleen were two of the best people I've ever
met and I ardently hope she improves soon. I wish I had some
trite platitude to offer, but I've never believed in any of that
and doubtless you've received plenty of it already anyway. I'll
simply say that you and your family deserve better and if there's
any justice in this world, your strength of character and
perseverance will not go unrewarded. Keep your hopes and
